I'll reiterate: De Administrando Imperio is, as far as early ethnic composition of contemporary Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia (especially Dalmatia) is concerned- virtually unanimously dismissed by all historians except Serbian propagandists. This goes for other sources, too: Chronicle of the Priest of Dioclea, Ioannes Scylitza, Nicifor Brieniy etc. Early ethnic composition can be only surmised- and this too is completely irrelevant since the historical evidence and analysis of these regions' (Zahumlje, Duklja) medieval history doesn't give a unanimous answer: there are traits of culture, history and socio-economic ties that «point» both to the Croat and to the Serb side, not placing the regions into either fold permanently. «Ethnic» or «political» borders on the pics are purely fictitious- as are their sources, as well as interpretations based upon them.

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.

The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.

Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
